Blog import improvements

I rolled out 2 major improvements to’s import feature today:

  • You can now import from a folder of Markdown files. This is designed to help migrating to from Jekyll, Hugo, or Blot. It supports basic front matter such as title, date, and categories or tags.
  • WordPress import has been updated with support for photo attachments that are not referenced in the blog post. will attempt to download your photos and store them on your blog.

You can read more about this over at the help. For the Markdown import, keep in mind that it’s just a ZIP file of Markdown files. It does not support including photos inside the archive because they will be downloaded from the web during import.

Despite the hiccup last night with profile photos while Linode had downtime for maintenance, should also be running significantly faster than before. I upgraded 2 servers last week.
